Yesterday, over a refreshing swim, a Tuareg girlfriend stated being entirely done with western men! I guess I must have looked a bit puzzled with her firm words and she was more than happy to explain her opinion.
‘Monique, western men want to do everything together! You’re on a holiday and you’re not even allowed some time by yourself. At home they want to eat all meals together and worst case scenario they even come visit you at work over lunch time. Your body always has to have the right curves and measures; gain or lose some kilos and they are no more happy with it and you always need to be nicely dressed. Apart from working and bringing home money, you’re expected to be a wonderful chef and don’t you dare to serve them a similar meal two days on a row: “are we eating that again?” And when you’re exhausted after the long day they expect you to be a sex goddess in bed, not even being satisfied with one single posture..!’
She pauses a moment before continuing:
‘Really, I do prefer Tuareg men! No complex sex involved, they treat their women well and eating dinner together two or three times a week will do. And if he can’t afford to pay you a maid, he will be so damned grateful that you’ve married him anyway, that he will never ever complain about anything. Every meal will be good, even if you serve him only one meal a day…’
It took her a few decades to figure this out…
To all western men: it’s just so you know!
